Hamilton-based architectural group names department head as part of succession plan

Hamilton-based Spiezle Architectural Group on Wednesday said it hired Julia Mueser as director of landscape architecture.

Mueser will be taking the reins of Spiezle’s Landscape Architecture Department, succeeding Jack Carman, longtime director of landscape architecture for the firm, who will be transitioning into retirement.

“Properly planning for succession is crucially important for ensuring our firm is set up for the future,” Thomas Perrino, CEO and president at Spiezle, stated. “As we celebrate Jack Carman’s illustrious career with the firm, we are equally as excited to have Julia lead the department for us into the future. I have full confidence that Julia will help our landscape architecture practice grow and serve our expansive client base as we move forward.”

Mueser has specialized in landscape architecture for over 25 years. She received her Bachelor of Science in landscape architecture from Pennsylvania State University. She is a well-rounded professional with a thorough design and planning understanding, and she is trusted by the clients she serves. Mueser represents the new wave of talent arriving at Spiezle.

“I couldn’t be more excited about joining a firm as reputable and knowledgeable as Spiezle,” Mueser stated. “The chance to succeed someone as experienced as Jack is an honor and privilege. I can’t wait to lend my experience and design insight to help the firm’s practice grow for the years to come.”

Mueser recently was the director of landscape architecture for a New Jersey-based engineering firm, where she also served as a professional planner.
